It was released in 1976, and Starred Bruce Li

the Original title is "Li Hsiao Lung chuan chi"

On Copyright.gov it has a registration for the film but this has c1976 not ©1976, Copyright 1976 or even the abbreviation Copr. required pre-1978. It is also registered to Eternal films, yet the film shows Enterprise Pictures Limited.

I'd be interested to see if I'm right or not, I accept if I'm wrong.

So, it's still under copyright then? - I had an Idea it would be.
